COLLEGE PARK, Md. — The Terps bring in the new year and conclude their month-long homestand with a non-conference meeting with the Colgate Raiders (1-11) this evening at Comcast Center.

Fresh off an 85-62 victory over North Florida last Wednesday, Maryland (9-4, 0-1 ACC) plays its final tuneup before an imposing trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on No. 1 Duke Sunday night. The Raiders’ lone win of the season came Sunday in an 80-61 result over Longwood, a team Maryland plays later this season and embarrassed by 51 points last year.

Tonight’s game will be televised on CSN+ with Steve Buckhantz (“Dagger!”) and Glenn Consor providing the call. As always, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@WNST) for the latest updates and analysis from College Park and in the Turtle Power live chat right here at!
